What size are the mirrors on the 690? I like the idea of having one folding mirror
and dose anyone know if the m8 ram mount bolt would fit where the mirror bolts in?
The KTM elbow is 8mm thread for the stalk.....
and the mount can be anything you can imagine :
8mm RHD 1.25mm pitch
8mm LHD 1.25mm pitch
10mm RHD (most bikes 1.25mm pitch)
10mm LHD Ducati and Yamaha
10mm RHD BMW 1.5mm pitch
Integral Bar mounts
Elbow mounts are sold separately, Mirror stalks also sold separately.
All the best,

Great quick service! I ordered my mirrors on Friday morning from Henri's website and got them on Monday afternoon. Not too bad for CA to WV. Everything arrived in perfect condition. Looks like a really nice product.
gotta bump for a nice product!....
ordered from henri on tues pm fla. time, they arrived on friday... can't beat that....
put the 243mm one on my dirty-fied KTM 450 SMR, and it works great! the stamped clamp bracket is perfect, you tighten it w/a locknut, and it can still swivel to adjust the mirror, and it's real small so it doesn't take up alotta bar space... . i blue loctite'd the ratchet nut, backed it off a little bit, and it adjusts great, swing it all the way out for driving on the road, and then put it in to the middle when you're gonna get dirty... seems like really nice stuff... i can see as much of the road as i need w/one of them on the left side, i can see having 2, but i'd rather have less for serious dirty-ness....
people were bitching about the mirrors being buzzy, but mine's clear as a bell, and i'm running Maxxis EN's on the road, but i balance them good.... maybe 'yer POS bike is buzzy....
nice stuff.... good service...
Been using your folding mirrors on my 990Adv since 1.5years and had a few get offs where they came out tops !!! awesome mirrors that can take a beating.
Recently, i dropped the bike on a low speed left hand sharp turn on a steep incline with smooth baby heads, while it was pouring wet. The mirrors were unfortunately not folded in and the left mirror took a hit at the right place and the plastic mounting elbow (not sure if that's what its called) broke.
the broken mirror
this is where it broke. Is that called the elbow ?
Question is, can i buy these plastic parts separately ? If yes, i'd like to buy a couple and keep some as spares.

Thx mate. got an email reply also from hb7.
Are these still available? I need a left side mirror for my DR650.
Sure , the whole collection is here :
You want the standard KTM 10mm perch mounts....for the Suzuki DR650.
My favorite dualsport mirrors. They are also perfect if you cover your bike every night.
Great service, super fast delivery.
Thank you again Henri!

Hi there what do you suggest as the best size to suit my 07 KTM 640 Adventure, and how much to freight to Australia for 2 mirrors.
The KTM 640 is a serious vibrating piece of equipment...
I suggest the 243mm length as it is a non counterbalanced single.
The longer 280mm mirrors would vibrate even more....
Airmail to AU is 26
Just curious , how many hours can you ride before you are totally knackered ?
~2 hours and I was done. Cooked.
I just came back from 6000km in 2 weeks on 2005 640 A.
Longest day was 725kms, sitting on about 110km/hr.
On bitumen and dirt. Didn't notice the vibes after the first day.
You Ozzies are tough lot.....725km, I'm suprised you weren't p*ssing blood.
I love big singles, but please make mine counterbalanced...
High compression 640LC is a beast. The KTM 690 is much friendlier...
Biggest day I've ever had was Alice Springs to Port Augusta which i think was about 1200 km dam near killed me, on a normal trip i will easily do 400 to 600 in a day which is plenty for me,
Have found rally foam hand grips help quite a lot for the vibes,
Will have to try a set of your mirrors i think as i have a set of the one's with the ram ball not happy with them at all.
Sir phily.....think about a kidney belt next time and you will not be so worn out.
Yes, the Doubletake Ram ball mirrors have to be adjusted all the time.
The ball is too smooth and they won't hold position at speed.
You can glue some 100-120 grit wet/dry sandpaper in the clamping area to try and remedy this....
Personally I have the KTM 280mm Folding on my MZ 660 and I still like them after 6 years....for splitting Los Angeles hella traffic.
I have the 243mm round mirror on the left side of my Versys and it was a great upgrade. Folds in easily when I want a narrower profile, and goes back into position easily.
I'm thinking about putting some on my FZ1 (bar mount on left, universal perch mount on right. Trying to decide which one. Other than the model I already have, I can't tell what size the actual mirrors are. Can you post photos comparing different mirrors, for example this:
